Product Details

Caprino is the newest addition to Malabrigo's yarn line and it's destined to be a new favorite! Its blend of Merino wool and cashmere combines with the stunning hand-dyed colors we know and love from Malabrigo to create a must-have yarn. Sumptuously soft and extremely versatile at a sport-to-DK weight, Caprino is an excellent yarn for cardigans, pullovers, cowls, and more—anything that needs to be next-to-the-skin soft! With an extensive color range including semi-solids, speckles, and variegated colorways, it's easy to find the perfect shade for your next knit or crochet project!

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and may vary from skein to skein. There may be differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive. To ensure the best results for your project:

  • Buy enough yarn for your entire project at one time.

  • When using hand-dyed yarn in your project work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

If you have any concerns about hand-dyed yarn, please contact Customer Service.

So soft and easy to work with! The variagated color, as in all the malabrigo yarns, is knitting up beautifully. It’s expensive, but the cashmere gives the yarn a beautiful hand and is worth the price.

I’ve used Caprino several times and it’s always a joy to knit with. So very soft and soothing.

Love the yarn, its so soft, but it did come with a terrible vinegar smell (but it did wash right out fortunately)
